The Bass Museum of Art has appointed Jose Carlos Diaz as Curator of Exhibitions. Diaz’s history in the Miami arts scene includes interning at the Rubell Collection in Wynwood, working at the Miami Art Museum and the Diana Lowenstein Gallery, and curating exhibits at the Moore Space and ArtCenter South Florida. Since 2005 Diaz has lived in Liverpool, England, where he worked at the Tate Liverpool gallery, part of a national network of British museums and arts programs where modern art and community programming are emphasized, and the Liverpool Biennial. At the Bass, Diaz will work with the museum’s education department to develop community and educational programming, as well as organize exhibitions.
The museum will announce Diaz’s appointment at the F@B event from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday at the museum at 2100 Collins Avenue in Miami Beach. The reception will feature a screening of artist and filmmaker Kevin Arrow’s film Gianni Versace, on the murdered designer and the creation of his Miami Beach mansion, and a performance by noise-rock duo Gavin Perry and Beatriz Monteavaro, known as Holly Hunt.
